Oatmeal Cookies with Raisin Bits

This oatmeal cookie recipe contains raisins, and specifies that the raisins be chopped into pieces. Believe it or not, this makes a big difference in the taste of these cookies. From Sidney Carlisle's article oatmeal cookies.
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups oatmeal (do not use instant)
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup raisins, chopped into pieces
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease two baking sheets. Combine the flour, salt, baking soda and oatmeal in a bowl. Set aside. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egg, water and vanilla until creamy. Stir in the flour mixture with a spoon. Mix well. Stir in the pecans and raisin pieces.

Drop by teaspoonfuls on the baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between the cookies. Bake about 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from the pan at once and cool on a wire rack.
Yields about 5 dozen cookies.
